Domaine Grier Grenache 2010
By Christian Eedes, 12 February 2014
The Griers of Villiera in Stellenbosch embarked on an international venture in 2006 when they invested in a small vineyard in the Roussillon region in the South of France and named Domaine Grier.
Enamoured with local examples of Grenache at the moment, I was curious to try the property’s Grenache 2010 which they make for retail chain Woolworths (R79.99 a bottle). Dark fruit, spice and dried herbs but also less attractive, earthy notes and very grippy tannins. Pretty rustic stuff on the whole.
